Business and Corporate Law

If you want to start, restructure, merge, expand or even wind down your business — our business law acumen can help keep your business buttoned up.

Starting a new business is more than a relationship between owners. It is a passion to do something great, to build something new, to realize a dream. At KSR, we can help you tackle the critical choices that involve starting a business — choices that will shape your future success.

We have experience in all stages of the life of your business, and we can provide valuable guidance on everything from choosing the correct legal entity and incorporating your business to assisting and closing transactions as you grow. You can rely on us for expert counsel in purchasing and financing new assets or new companies. Our expertise also extends to restructuring, mergers, divestitures, and any other corporate transaction.

Although we always try to avoid disputes before they start, many are unavoidable. In those cases, our skill and advice can help partners and shareholders navigate to a successful resolution of their organizational disputes. Whether it is a shareholder dispute, the voluntary or involuntary withdrawal of a member, the death of a shareholder, or the dissolution of a company, we can provide advice and assistance in navigating the difficult and critical decisions that influence the success of your business.

We tailor our advice to your business needs, and we are always available to provide assistance with any issues however simple or complex. Our goal is to help your business be successful and create a relationship for the long term.

We have helped many businesses in Central Ohio get off the ground and grow. If that is what you want for your business, contact Scott N. Schaeffer or Steven D. Rowe.
